DE LA SIERRA, JORDAN - GYMNOSPHERE: SONG OF THE ROSE (2LP)


"Before New Age hit terra firms at the dawn of the 1980s, the classically-trained Bay Area composer Jordan De La Sierra's consciousness soared with cosmic concepts. With cues and lessons from the great minimalists La Monte Young,Terry Riley, Pandit Pran Nath, and help from the venerable public radio program Hearts of Space, De La Sierra embarked on a journey in alternate tunings and resounding reverberations, transporting entranced listeners from the Golden Gates to the intergalactic. Take an interstellar ride on the sensory engulfing space piano with this lovingly recreated double LP set, complete with De La Sierra's India-inspired visual artwork and musings on the tableau of space." (label info) originally released in 1977 on Unity Records, the San Franciscan label that is called the first New Age record company. comes with 20 pp. booklet, with essays and drawings by De La Sierra. also available on 2CD
